Olufemi OdetokiI pray that God will comfort and compensate the mother and the rest of the family. We will all die one day but where we go is the most important. I pray we go to heaven when we die in Jesus name. Amen.

TerryYou just don't blame the ordinary Nigerians who cannot say much about foreigner behaviours in our land. If the so called leaders had not sold us for their own benefits it would have been different but we are the Western and the American axe cleaner and our leaders are their ball boys, "meaning when the ball is out of play, they will help to pick it up and give it back to them".

Auwal KanoIf it were an American killed in Nigeria, this will make a headline on CNN with Obama, Clinton and even Abraham Lincoln condenming it. Where are our leaders? My heart goes out to all Nigerians and his family for this irreparable loss. It takes talent to be a rapper.

UnbeliverWhat do you mean Ayorinde?
If Nigeria fully Registered all her citizens, and endorsed the right to carry fire arm, thousands of helpless Nigerians massacared in religious and ethnic violence would have had something to defend themselves with.

The menance of armed robery will also be checked. Other than our armies, we have more illegal than legal guns in the country. Don't you agree?

seer... and countries will keep being used by others (to the detriment of their own citizens) until people wake up and refuse to be used in exchange for money. As long as people are willing to sell their brother and sister "down the river" in exchange for power and/or financial gain, the situation will not become better. The big secret? The power to change our lives rests squarely with us, no one can really make decisions for us. We have to think our way out, not burst forth emotionally, we can do it, it is how we have been designed, for freedom, for love, for life!
